MySQL CURTIME Example

The following query shows you the basic use of this curtime function.

SELECT CURTIME();
MySQL CURTIME Function 1

As you can see from the above Date Function screenshot, it is showing the current time in HH:MM:SS format.

Let me add 0 seconds to this Curtime() and add a custom name using Alias Name. I mean, instead of using it as a Numeric Value, we are using MySQL string format.

SELECT CURTIME() + 0 AS 'Time String';
